Real Science 4 Kids
** From the Publisher’s Website: **
Real Science 4 Kids has two different product lines:
- Focus On series, which is a single-subject, semester-long, unit study, that introduces kids to five science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy).
- Building Block series, which is a rigorous, multi-subject, yearlong, “upward spiral” program where kids build concepts sequentially each year.
With either product line, your child will learn science by doing science, much in the same way graduate students and post-docs learn science by doing science: they read, do experiments, research some ideas, read some more, do more experiments, research more ideas, and over time master the subject.
All of the books introduce real science to students and this means scientific facts and theories that are currently accepted by the scientific community. However, the books also introduce students to the philosophy of science and encourage students to explore opposing viewpoints when it comes to interpreting what these facts and theories may mean to individuals, groups, and the larger community.
